Just had to give some props to my brother who is working on a rehab with me. We had some mold issues due to neglect, improper grade, tree and shrub growth, a block foundation, plugged gutters, and downspouts draining straight down at the foundation.
- Corrected water problem (outside grade, downspouts, gutters).
- Bleach and water treatment to remove the mold. More Information can be found at http://www.epa.gov/mold/moldresources.html.
- Patched failing mortar joints inside and out.
- Drylock walls after moisture subsides.
Check out the nearly finished project:
